Reliable Criminal Defense for White Collar Crimes in Fort Lauderdale

When most people think about criminal charges, they think of violent crimes. But white collar crimes are different. These offenses don’t involve bodily harm but instead financial harm to others. Most white collar crime offenders are ordinary people who, for various reasons, make calculated, impulsive, or poor decisions.

One fairly common white collar crime is wire fraud. Why is it so common? Because it is one way for federal prosecutors can convict individuals when they are unable to do so on other charges. The alleged offenses might be tax fraud, health care fraud, securities fraud, or other crimes.

Although white collar crimes, such as wire fraud, may not cause physical harm to the victims, it often causes severe financial harm. Because of this, prosecutors take these types of crimes very seriously and will often seek the maximum allowable penalties. Individuals accused of such crimes should retain a seasoned criminal defense lawyer who can work to fight these allegations.

Wire Fraud Defined

Pursuant to federal statute 941.18 U.S.C. 1343, wire fraud is identical to the mail fraud statute except that it speaks of communications transmitted by wire. “Wire” is defined as electronic communications, including radio and television, or via an interstate telephone call.

The four essential elements of the crime of wire fraud are:

  • That the defendant voluntarily and intentionally devised or participated in a scheme to defraud another out of money;
  • That the defendant did so with the intent to defraud;
  • That it was reasonably foreseeable that interstate wire communications would be used; and
  • That interstate wire communications were in fact used.

Penalties Associated with Wire Fraud

The punishments for wire fraud are harsh. They can include:

  • A punitive fine
  • Up to 20 years in prison

More severe punishments include an additional 10 years in prison, which may occur when the offense (or alleged offense) affects a financial institution or happens during a time of national emergency or disaster.

Attempting or conspiring to commit wire fraud is punishable by the same penalties as those who actually succeed in committing the offenses. Government prosecutors could try to use this communication in their case against you. Having skilled advice from The Hoffman Firm could mean the difference between a hefty fine or jail sentence and a lesser penalty or an acquittal.
